Myanmar National Undergoes Successful Liver Transplantation in Delhi

Doctors in Thailand and in his home country Myanmar did not give him more than six months to live, but 63-year-old Yacoob Zamal found hope //and new life in a Delhi hospital which successfully conducted a live donor liver transplant.

Before coming to India, he had spent over 10 million kyats ($1.5 million) on his health.

In a live donor transplant, the patient and the donor are kept in two parallel operation theatres and a part of the donor's liver, the only regenerative organ in the body, is taken away and implanted in the receiver's body. A donor needs to be between the ages of 18-55 with weight ranging from a minimum 55 kg to maximum 85 kg.
